While the 50 year old City of Dallas course was not broken it had been neglected. The original design was created more as a response to the flood plain that it was constructed within rather than the game of golf. Greens and tees were huge mounds of soil placed at an elevation which would get them out of the 100 year floods.
CGD worked with the city to take what started as a greens resurfacing and irrigation project and expanded into a renovation of tees, fairways, irrigation, practice facilities, drainage, grasses, landscaping, bunkers and total greens complexes. The practice facility at Luna Vista was also redone and is now one of the best in the state with a 12,000 square foot putting green, short game area and a double ended practice range with target greens and a target fairway.
